Ridge Zinfandel Blend Sonoma County Geyserville 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Ridge has made an art of producing exceptional Zinfandels, and Geyserville isthe one that stands out. The wine is full in body, fleshy, impressivelyrich in fruit, with complex flavours reminiscent off blackberries, chocolate,peppery spice and cedar oak, all wrapped in fine-grained, extremelyrefined tannins. It can beautifully develop for another 4-6 years. The 2004already shines. BBR Score 19/20

With over 270 acres of estate vineyards and close relationships with longtime growers throughout Sonoma County, we are able to source and manage our favorite blocks from each vineyard throughout the growing season and select the most premium fruit during harvest.Each vineyard and appellation we source from carry particular qualities in either the terroir or the farming style that we look for when considering a Mauritson wine release. Six generations of farming has taught us a few things about choosing premium fruit! Each harvest, the best from our 230 acres throughout the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys is reserved for our Estate Wines. These wines, which include our signature Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, showcase the fruit-forward, floral and spice-driven characteristics attributed to these appellations. Winemaking may have been the logical evolution in our family’s long history of farming in the Dry Creek Valley, however, it took an absence from the valley and attention to those inner voices that led Clay Mauritson back to these same vineyards that he spent planting, tending and picking as a teen. What he came to realize was that he already had a lifetime of understanding about the subtleties and strengths of each micro-climate within the Dry Creek, Rockpile and Alexander Valleys. The only thing left was to DREAM BIG! Tasting Room We are open daily from 10-5. Group Tasting by Appointment, Handicap Accessible, Picnic Facilities, Wine Tasting, Wine Tours by Appointment.

Not as engaging as Ridge's Lytton Springs of the same vintage, but a solid effort.

Geyserville was Ridge's first source of red wine grapes, along with Montebello. This is Ridge's most age-worthy Zinfandel, showing pepper, tar, and cedar when young, and rich mocha as it ages.
